R9 Supertri driver head

17 posts in this topic

So yesterday I was at the course and I walked into the trees to use the facilities only to see a clubhead laying in the leaves. So I pick it up and it's a 10.5 R9 Supertri driver head. I've not looked at any of the adjustable TM drivers but it seems that someone tossed the head into the woods after the shaft broke or something but there is no remnants of the shaft at all. It Looks like the shaft would be held in by a screw or something through the bottom of the club? Just curious if this would be worth selling without a shaft or if I should just try to get a shaft for it? Or, just toss it in the trash?

Sell it, sure.

You'll probably only get around $20 for it.

Or maybe even inquire/turn it in to the clubhouse?  Possibly someone could be wondering where in the hell their driver head dissappeared to.....

Or possibly, it's cracked somewhere and was tossed for a reason.

I doubt someone is wondering where it is because of where I found it isn't near where it could be accidentally lost, but it is possible there is a crack maybe. I've looked it over pretty well and there are no visible issues.

A weird story . But I wish I was as Lucky as you are, the R9 supertri stays my favourite driver 's head of all times, and I Keep playing it those days. I broke two of them from 2010 (the metal breaks on the crown, as it often does with big hitters)  so I m still in search for best price good condition Supertri heads. Though my last one is still in good shape. I ll certainly buy one or two more as it becomes tougher to find in very good condition here in France.

My thinking is that TM was at his peak with the making of this head, and none of the followers are even better, for me as I tried all of them as a Demoman for an other OEM.

The only issue is the fragility that pertains to all R9 heads.

Opinions???

What kind of shape is it in? I'd be interested in it. Or I've got a couple shafts I'd sell you for it for a good price. 1 steel True Temper XL Lite and 1 Aldila VS Proto 70s.

I would probably just send it to you for the price of shipping, don't feel right selling something I found to anyone in case there is some sort of internal issue with it. From the face wear it seems like the owner hit some pretty fat shots and that may have caused a snapped shaft, hard to tell though.

I love this driver, I have two of them set up identical. I have tried the newer ones and they are no better maybe worse for me, so for less than $100 on ebay for replacements I'll stick with this model for sure.

Not a problem, like I said, I have no idea if there are any internal problems so I wouldn't feel right taking money for it. Just let me know if it was any good when you get a chance to use it :beer:

Good for him then, haha, it's doing nothing but sitting around now. Better that he gets it and it works perfectly for free than to pay and it's busted.

    • That looks nifty, but… it's only really going to be an option for awhile in some high-end places, I'm wagering. If it's a full range, you can of course see your ball flight. So the tracer itself is probably not that important, right? The points and games are another thing, kinda TopGolf-like.
    • That looks awesome! I hope that sooner or later all driving ranges will have that technology built into them.  Was it more expensive than a regular bucket of balls?
    • I didn't take it that way. I know the HGG quote, and that it's a way of saying "goodbye." That's not exactly "cool" though either: Mike tells you he's mad at you, I demonstrate that your impact conditions and backswing are worse, and you say "okay, goodbye." But yeah, I took it this way: That fits quite well since you keep talking about how you have to know and understand the whole system just to implement a piece, and about how your brain works that way, and so on. How I took the fish quote is pretty clear from the response, is it not? All that said, I apologize. I took it the wrong way. I reacted more strongly than I would have had I taken it the HGG way, and I'm sorry for that. Disagreement isn't intolerable at all. But you're not really disagreeing with anything, either… you're choosing to ignore things, and you seem to think that you're not being helped. You're wasting our time. Disagreement? At least there's discourse there. Ignoring? That's just a (small) slap in the face… Mike and I - and others - have given you a boatload of free advice. I can't speak for others, but I don't expect you to pay for anything, ever. When all else fails, play the victim card again? Anyone who has met @mvmac will tell you he's not quick to anger. So if you pissed him off, well, then more than likely you did something, and are not just some passive victim. P.S. You're likely getting better because you're hitting balls. You're learning how to make the flaws in your swing at least time themselves up right. You're learning to time your flip just right so that you can pick the ball off the ground without fatting or thinning it. You're learning how to sway your hips and drop your head back/early extend on the downswing so you can hit out a little bit despite being super steep (and you need a really closed stance to help you with that). You're getting better at making a flawed swing because you're repeating it often. You're lowering the ceiling on how good you can get each time you visit the range and don't practice properly, or practice the proper things. Your swing may actually be worse now than a week or two ago. We tried to help you - free, and by giving you much of our most valuable asset (our time) - and you instead pissed off one of the calmest people around and ignored the advice of many others, including me, who knows what I'm talking about. Then you chose to play the victim after a vague reference to fish, and took the easy out of saying "oh, you just don't like people who disagree." No, I don't like people who waste my time, but the solution on my end is very easy: I simply choose to stop wasting my time on them. I don't care if you disagree. I prefer it, really, so long as you're a worthy adversary. You? You don't stack up. We can't talk about some intricate part of the golf swing. Nor should you at this point, or possibly ever, because you're a golfer, not a golf instructor. That's all fine. But I can choose to stop giving you free advice, and spending my time doing it.  So if your goal is to have me ignore you from here on out, you've succeeded! :-) I'll spend my time helping those who appreciate it.
    • Did anyone make it to this?  I had some things come up and couldn't make it. Also, we should get a spring round get together going...
    • You misunderstand. Yes, of course he is one of the ATGs on the current list. What I am saying is that can change, not that it will, but it can. Like I said it is an ever expanding/changing list.
